The all-new 2018 Jeep Wrangler – the most capable and recognized vehicle in the world – builds on its legendary history with an unmatched combination of off-road capability, authentic Jeep design, open-air freedom, advanced fuel-efficient powertrains, superior on- and off-road dynamics, and a host of innovative safety and advanced technology features.

The 2018 Jeep Wrangler 2-door model is available in three different trim configurations: Sport, Sport S and Rubicon. Wrangler 4-door models are available in four different trim configurations: Sport, Sport S, Sahara and Rubicon.

Built in Toledo, Ohio, the all-new 2018 Wrangler arrives in Jeep showrooms in January.

Now, the overall design is more on an evolution over the older model. Typical of Jeep’s DNA, the new Wrangler comes with a slightly tweaked front grille, new circular headlamps with LED & LED DRLs, new glass sections all round, vents on the front fenders, larger tail lamps, new spare tyre position, new alloy wheels & new body cladding.

Inside, the Wrangler continues to look tough and built for the purpose. The Wrangler continues with a horizontal dashboard which is iconic. You now have a new instrument console, new AC unit, new infotainment screen, reworked dashboard layout, circular AC vents, and some more tech.

Thanks to the extra wheelbase on the new model, the Wrangler is now more spacious inside. The SUV now has better approach & departure angles along with being capable of 30-inch of water-fording. Separate skid plates for the fuel tank, transfer case & gearbox ensure added safety.

With better aerodynamics on the new model, the 2018 Wrangler is 9% lower in the co-efficient of drag.

Engine options:

●    3.6L, V6 Petrol producing 285 HP & 353 Nm
●    2.0L, 4-cylinder turbo Petrol producing 270 HP & 400 Nm
●    2.2-litre, 4-cylinder turbo Diesel producing 197 HP & 450 Nm
